KJ I hope that you can bring these to Fulton this year I'm sure they will sell.  Put me down for some as well.

Thanks Justin! I hope to have a stock of items to bring to Fulton this year. It's coming up quick and I have a lot of work to do before then! Not to mention I would like to build a new truck to put in the show by then.

I'd like to see the 2 hole rears with Italeri tires, can you post a picture when you get a chance?

 

No problem. I am making molds for the 2-holes today, so I should have some cast by Monday. Here are pictures of the masters that I am using for the molds with Italeri tires.

I have the molds for the 24.5" 5-hole rims done as well as my brake drums, drive hubs, stemco oil hubs, and hub caps. Here is a full set of the 5-holes:

It's not whether it makes me feel better, it's proper scale.

 

The problem is that Italeri wheels are not to 1/24 scale. Ever measure one? They work out to 23" in diameter in 1/24 scale. They work out to 24" in 1/25 scale however.

This appears to be 1/25th scale. You should make those in 1/24th scale for Italeri model trucks.

 

They are 1/25 scale, but the 24.5" rims actually fit the Italeri tires perfectly.

Here is a complete wheel set. I have been building up a stock pile of my stemco oil hubs, brake drums, drive hubs, and hub caps. I have 2-hole and 5-hole rims in 22.5" and 24.5" sizes, but I am still working on making molds for all of these.
